Situated right in front of the lake, the pension offers one of the nicest view in Egirdir. We stayed one night just to continue the roadtrip to Cappadocia the day after but we were so amazed by the place. We were very pleased with the warm welcoming of the hosts. We dined in the restaurant of the pension and we... More

We spent five excellent nights here in a large, nicely-furnished, spotless room on the top floor with windows and glass doors giving views of leafy plane trees and the lake. Husseyin and Yilmaz and their families could not have been kinder, giving traditional Turkish hospitality at all times, offering helpful advice on excursions and collecting us from and taking us...

Set on the edge of the lake on an island linked to the mainland by a causway this place is lovely. The views are amazing, the food fresh and tasty, the hospitality warm and friendly. The rooms are clean and fresh. A lovely place to stay!

We arrived late afternoon in heavy rain disappointed that our planned dinner by the lakeside was not to be. However, our disappointment was offset by the warmth of our greeting. Our party stayed in Lautrec and the room next to it. Both overlooked the lake and were of a very decent size with good facilities. Given the weather we decided... More

We stayed here for 3 days and had a great time. Huseyin was incredibly helpful - we discovered the day before arriving that our overnight bus would drop us off in Egirdir at 4am. Huseyin not only accommodated our last minute request to book a room for that extra night/morning we'd be arriving, but also picked us up from the... More

This is a comfortable familiy-run pension in an excellent location. All the facilities work: taps, TV, wi-fi, plugs. No reason for any complaint. The proprietor is really helpful and appears able to arrange anything: boat trips, cycle hire, walking guides. The lakeside restaurant is excellent, but if driven inside by bad weather the place is a bit spartan. Food is... More

The Choo Choo pension has lovey, spacious rooms some with access to a balcony with views to the lake. It is run by a welcoming family. The host Huseyin was a wealth of information and very helpful. Upon hearing that we had an early bus to catch upon leaving he provided us their amazing breakfast and a ride to the... More

Like other pensions in the town this looked quite ordinary but the rooms were clean and quiet and the dinner and breakfast were lovely home-cooked meals from much of their own making or preparation : butter, olives, eggs, dolmas, pastries, conserves (watch out for pips in the cherry jam).

Nice hotel. The rooms are very clean and even if the decoration is a little dated, we appreciated our stay there. The location is great and they have a great terrace for dinner and breakfast with a fantastic view over the lake. The dinner was really good as well.

I stayed her for 2 nights and my only regret is that I didn't stay longer. Arriving without any reservation I looked at the competition on the island and Choo Choo was the best value for money, a spotless, spacious room with comfortable bed and updated bathroom. The breakfast served in the lakeside restaurant was wonderful, as was the food... More
